Positive results at 2nd "Test & Tune" day of the 2010 season

The Hytech Evo made some positives steps in the right direction today, running 10.65 & 10.81 seconds on only 17psi boost and 98 ron pump gas. We achieved our best 60ft time to date of 1.63 seconds on street tyres. Unfortunately we only managed to get in 4 runs the whole day. By the time we used up the pump gas and switched to race gas and more boost the day came to a close and it was time to pack up.

A couple Hytech Engines customer cars turned up to the Nizfest Drags to get a couple of runs in.

Test & Tune Nov 2010.

It was a very hot day and luckily there weren't too many cars out for testing which meant we could get in quite a few runs.

We were still running the car on pump gas and 17psi boost today. The driver needs to get as much seat time as possible to feel comfortable in the car before we run full power on race gas.

The good news is that we didn't break anything today. There were a few cars which smashed diffs and gearboxes, so we were lucky.

The only issues we had was the car would bog in 2nd gear, but we would still manage to cross the line doing over 130mph (208kph)!

We managed to reduce the cars 60ft time to 1.699 seconds, and most of our runs had a top speed of between 130 - 133mph.

2010 Night Speed Drag Wars Round 1

Round 1 of the 2010 Night Speed Drag Wars was the first outing for the freshly rebuilt Hytech Engines Drag Evo. Unfortunately the night was ended early when a faulty injector stopped us from running. However a Hytech Engines customer won his class, taking out the Turbo 4WD (C1) Class with consistant low 11 second passes. Well done to Dayne!
